Golden Swallow (1968)
Reviewed by: MrBooth on 2004-07-18
Summary: ****1/2
Nominal sequel to Come Drink With Me, with Chang Cheh infusing his own bloody style with that of King Hu's work from the previous year to create a rather wonderful beast. Much more melodramatic and violent (the body count is quite staggering) but very beautifully and creatively shot. There's some very innovative camera work, including some camera work in fight scenes that was years ahead of its time. Sometimes it must be admitted that their ambitions exceeded their abilities somewhat (and some shots are just plain out of focus :p ), but full marks for trying. Almost a 5 star film.
Reviewer Score: 9
